Patient Comments (1)
in Voorhees, NJ |
Dr. Thonas Leist has been my neurologist for about 12 years. He is an excellent diagnostician. He always has known exactly what to do when I'm in an exacerbation. He also knows what to do to help me stave off another MS episode. I have complete faith in him. He is SO GOOD that I have 5 other relatives treated by him and one that travels from Maryland just to see him. He's AAA+ in our book.
